New exhibition: Two Photographers … Two Countries
Finally, my great friend, fellow photographer and co-conspirator, Emma Jones and I have finally hung our exhibition titled "Two Photographers ... Two Countries". The exhibition opens on Tuesday 29th November 2016 at "Pasta n' Goulash", 51 Red Lion Street, London WC1R 4PF, which is an amazing pop-up bar and restaurant created by our good friends Agatha and Tamás as part of The Plot Twist.
The exhibition shows how two photographers can have a varied and differ view of two countries even though they were travelling together. Back in November and December 2012, we visited Laos and Vietnam which are both still communist countries in the heart of South-East Asia but also noted for there very friendly and welcoming people. For both of us, South-East Asia is a magic part of the world and there is always lots to photograph ... you just have to open your eyes and be inspired.
Some people think that if you go around with other photographers shooting the same things that everyone will just end up with the same images. Generally, I don't believe this to be true as we all see the world from different perspectives and find different aspects more interesting. Consequently, each photographer will produce their own vision of the place or subjects that they are photographing. I know that I have often asked a fellow photographer "where was that? I didn't notice that?". I am very thankful that we are all different and can provide such different images so we can inspire our fellow photographers
You are welcome to come and join us for the opening on Tuesday 29th November 2016 from 6pm. It runs until Saturday 3rd December 2016 - both Emma and I also will be there Saturday evening and are more than welcome to chat with you. We are plotting more projects too so keep a look out.
